  1. Amusingly, I don't actually have a 5200, so I can't say if it would fit, or not. I built these controllers as a gift for a friend. If anyone has a spare functional 5200 that they would be willing to part with, I'd be happy to develop a mounting solution. - Alex
  2. I'm fairly new to the ST, but I picked up 3 STs, in a lot, recently. I got a 520stfm, a 520stm, and a 520st. I didn't get any monitors, or video cables, with them, though. Given that situation, the first thing that I did was to make up a DIN-13 to composite video + audio cable. The quality of output I got from that was acceptable (but not great) at low res, and terrible at medium res. Looking to improve my output, I bought a an NEW v2.0 Atari ST DIN13 to VGA Adaptor Low-Medium/High Switchable with Audio Out and, after reading that my Extron RGB-HDMI 300a was capable of going beyond the spec of 30 kHz, I tried it out. I think that the results speak for themselves. You can see some jailbars, particularly in high res, but if I take a bit of time to adjust the phase, those should go away. These images are the defaults, with zero tuning. - Alex
  3. Thanks much! The video series will continue, but I’m doing content for #MARCHintosh, this month. - Alex
  4. Thanks, CuloMajia! The STLs are in the other thread on this board: - Alex
  5. Video #3 is now up: https://youtu.be/H1eab47qP3s Is anyone here watching these? - Alex
  6. That's great to hear! I'm doing these updates of @amiman99's original design for those who wish to DIY their own controllers. I'd also be more than willing to assist the both of you, should you need CAD or 3D printing assistance. - Alex
  7. Thanks, @DrVenkman. Out of curiosity, are you planning to start selling them again? Yours looked pretty amazing. I’ll go back and mirror mine, and share them. - Alex
  8. I just uploaded another video in this series: https://youtu.be/Qsv6zPqnLCg Please let me know what you think! - Alex
  9. Out of curiosity, do folks prefer the left-side thumb stick layout? If so, I can mirror this to that layout, and share that, too. I might also make the change that @amiman99 suggested, and extend the retaining tabs around most of the edges of the shell. - Alex
  10. Oh, sorry; I included the .step files, and not the .stl files. You can probably import the STEP files to Blender, using a plugin, as well. I've attached the .stl files here, as well. - Alex Case bottom.stl Case top.stl Button cap.stl
  11. Here are the STLs, and the Fusion 360 drawing, should you want to modify it. The parts not included are @amiman99 originals. Thanks! - Alex 5200 joystick fire btn v6.step Case bottom v7.step Case Top v7.step Case v7.f3z 5200 joystick fire btn v6.f3z
  12. Here is an updated version, showing all the changes: Fusion 360 - 5200 SuperController I didn't re-model your number button caps or the start/pause/restart buttons, yet. They work fine, as is, and I haven't gotten to it. I did adjust the sizes of the cutouts a bit, and realigned the fire buttons, for the right-side thumbtack layout. I also changed the specified screws for some self-drilling plastic screws. Here are some renders, and a photo, as well. - Alex
  13. I am so sorry for your loss. Out best thoughts and wishes go out to you and your family. - Alex
  14. I just published a new video, in which I start to build Dr. Scott M. Baker’s Atari 5200 controller: https://youtu.be/Og82Gg5r95s This will be a multi-part series, I suspect 3 parts. Let me know what you think! - Alex
  15. I completed my re-layout of the right-thumbstick version of the controller. @amiman99 let me know what your thoughts on me sharing my work. I re-drew the top, completely, in Fusion 360. Fusion 360 Model (Top) I fixed the button alignment issue, and changed the edges to chamfers, to print better. - Alex
